TRUSTEES APPROVE FORENSIC CENTER, NEXT STEP OF GREEK HOUSING CONSTRUCTION

At the May 9 meeting of the BGSU Board of Trustees, the board formally voted to name Dr. Ronald Scherer, communication sciences and disorders, a Distinguished Research Professor. His upcoming conferral of the distinction was celebrated at the Faculty Excellence Awards.

Also approved was the Ohio Center for Forensic Science, which will complement BGSU's partnership with the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Information (BCI) that was formed in May 2013. The $11.9 million, state-of-the-art crime lab is under construction on campus. It will expand the capabilities of the current office while offering BGSU students learning opportunities in the forensic sciences. The departments of chemistry, biology and criminal justice have added tracks in forensics to their degree programs and a new master's degree in forensic science is being developed.

Located on campus, the interdisciplinary center is to be funded through the Ohio Attorney General's office and the BCI and administered by BGSU's Office of Research and Economic Development. Its purpose is to serve the needs of the professional forensic community, foster innovative forensic science research, and create training opportunities for forensic professionals.
